Preparing the Peppers to Stuff 

Slice 5 large poblano peppers in half lengthwise. Take out the seeds but leave the stem.  This creates the perfect cavity to add the rice mixture. 

Place in a baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray so that the pepper does not stick to the dish and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until the peppers start to soften.
